From a Washington Post story covering the transformation of CNN from “safe-and-serious” to whatever it’s trying to be under the new leadership of Jeff Zucker:

“I like him,” said another Washington-based CNN employee, who … declined to be identified due to “the sensitivity of the situation,” as he put it. “It’s clear we need some fresh ideas. It seems to me, he has a great instinct for what people want to watch on TV. I think he knows what makes good water-cooler TV.”
